Abstract:

From June 25- 29, 2012, SAfAIDS ran a 5 day electronic discussion forum (eForum) focused on the issue of engaging young Zimbabweans (15 – 29 years) in HIV prevention efforts. This discussion aimed to identify barriers to effective access of HIV prevention information for youth that promotes risky behaviour and accelerates the incidence of HIV infection among youth in Zimbabwe. The discussion seeks to deliberate on these barriers and risk factors; thereby ensuring young Zimbabweans are correctly informed, and mobilised to become more engaged in HIV prevention.
